  • 2 more suspected swine flu cases in Hawaii

    HONOLULU (AP) ? State health officials say two more suspected cases of swine flu have surfaced in Hawaii.

    State Department of Health spokeswoman Janice Okubo says that the two adults are under voluntary home confinement as they recover.

    Okubo says tests to confirm swine flu will be conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Word of the new suspect cases came the day after the state announced the first three cases of swine flu in Hawaii had been confirmed by CDC laboratory tests.

    Okubo says she didn't know if the new suspect cases were related to the three original three cases ? a school-age child and a military couple. She also didn't know of the two suspect cases involved travel to the mainland or Mexico.
